Physics at Sutton Grammar School
Physics aims to quantify the natural world through a series of mathematical relationships. It sets out to understand the fundamental laws that govern the way in which the universe evolves. Consequently, Physics spans an enormous number of disciplines from Astronomy and Cosmology to Particle Physics and String Theory.
The two year course is split into nine topics; eight core and one optional.
Measurements and their errors:
- Particles and radiation
- Mechanics and materials
- Further mechanics and thermal physics
- Fields and their consequences
- Nuclear physics
With a choice of one from:
- Medical physics
- Engineering physics
- Turning points in physics
To study A Level Physics you will need to have an interest in the subject coupled with a
good grade in both Maths and Physics GCSE. There is a large mathematical component to the course and it is strongly advised that Maths is studied in conjunction with Physics, although this is not essential.
